Mose AllisonMose Alive ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of Mose's mid 60s albums for Atlantic – recorded live, with a bit more of a hip flair than some of his earlier work for Prestige and Columbia, but still with those great vocals that went onto influence a generation of beatnik jazz singers. Mose has more than a bit of New Orleans in his tone – but he's also got some northern distance from his material, bringing a nice bit of wit into the recordings. There's a total of 11 tracks including "Parchman Farm", "Smashed", "Seventh Son", "Fool's Paradise", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "The Chaser". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green label pressing.)

Ray CharlesDo The Twist With Ray Charles ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Pretty great stuff – and not the gimmicky "dance" record you might guess from the title! The set's simply a collection of some of Ray's best hard-hitting R&B tracks for Atlantic – mostly recorded in the 50s, and brought together with this 60s title, in a package that also features twist dance steps on the back. Get past the title, and the tunes are excellent – an all star selection of tracks that includes "Tell Me How Do You Feel", "I Got A Woman", "Heartbreaker", "Tell The Truth", "You Be My Baby", "What'd I Say", and "I'm Movin On". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has some splitting in the seams and spine.)

Ray CharlesGenius Of Ray Charles ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good- ... $6.99
Later Atlantic Records material from the legendary Ray Charles – a set that definitely lives up to the genius of the title, in that it shows a real sense of development in Ray's music! Charles has moved from the shorter R&B of his early Atlantic singles, to embrace some greater jazz-based sophistication – served up here with players who include Paul Gonsalves and Zoot Sims on tenor, Clark Terry and Joe Newman on trumpets, Melba Liston and Al Gray on trombones, and Freddie Greene on guitar – all players who really shift things towards a richer, fuller sound – setting the stage for Charles 60s growth at ABC Records, but with less of the country modes. Titles include Charles takes on classics like "Just For A Thrill", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Cryin", "Am I Blue", and "It Had To Be You" – and the record also features a young Marcus Belgrave delivering a trumpet solo on "Alexander's Ragtime Band". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple pinwheel label pressing. Cover has a small center split on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Ray CharlesGenius Sings The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good ... $14.99
Ray Charles in a nicely maturing mode – on a record from later in his Atlantic Records years, definitely paving the way forward for his 60s classics on ABC! The tunes are blues, but not in the way that Charles first started recording on earlier singles for Atlantic – as there's a bit more class, care, and a strong current of jazz that Ray was bringing more and more to his music as the years went on. Titles include the Charles originals "Hard Times", "I Believe To My Soul", "Mr Charles Blues", "I Wonder Who", "Some Day Baby", and "Nobody Cares" – plus nice takes on "I'm Movin On" and "The Midnight Hour". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album

Ray CharlesWhat'd I Say ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good- ... $9.99
A pivotal album for Ray Charles – one that features the sweet electric piano jammer "What'd I Say" – offered up here in 2 parts, and a track that would become the prototype for so many funk songs in years to come! There's a vibe here that really takes off from the R&B of the earlier years – showing Charles as a pivotal force in the move towards soul music – both from an instrumental and vocal standpoint! The Raelettes back Ray up on most tracks – and other tracks include "Rockhouse (parts 1 & 2)", "Roll With My Baby", "You Be My Baby", "Jumpin In The Mornin", and "What Kind Of Man Are You". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has some wear & aging.)

Chris ConnorChris Craft ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good- ... $14.99
Chris' Craft is a great one here – beautifully simple and straightforward jazz vocals, served up at a level that few other singers can match! The album's one of our favorites from Connor's classic years with Atlantic – as it's got a mellow, moody approach that's filled with the darker tones that first caught our ears on Chris' earliest recordings for Bethlehem. Instrumentation here is mostly small combo – arranged by Stan Free, and featuring Free on piano, Bobby Jaspar on flute, Mundell Lowe on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums. Titles include "Be A Clown", "Be My All", "Good For Nothin", "Moonlight In Vermont", "The Night We Called It A Day", "Lover Man", and "On The First Warm Day". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small center split bottom seam.)

Chris ConnorChris In Person ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good ... $9.99
A nice little live set from Chris – recorded at the Village Vanguard with a group that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Eddie De Haas on bass, Bill Rubenstein on piano, and Lex Humphries on drums. The setting of the album is similar to some of Chris' work at Bethlehem – very small combo and jazzy, save for the fact that there's a bit more "room" in the recording than on the very close-miked Bethlehem sessions. The approach is a great one to open up another new side of Connor's talents – and the album has a bit tighter feel than Chris' other live album from the same period. Titles include "Round Midnight", "All About Ronnie", "Fine & Dandy", "Misty", "Senor Blues", and "Angel Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Long Playing Unbreakable pressing with deep groove.)

Chris ConnorI Miss You So ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good ... $6.99
A beautiful title for a beautiful record – one that sums up the subtle sense of sadness that makes the work of Chris Connor so great! There's a sense of longing here that steps out from the very first tune – one that's beautifully moody, without being overindulgent or too emotive. Backings are from larger arrangements by Ray Ellis, but the record also has a light jazzy feel – intimate in approach, with a great sense of balance. Chris' voice is at once personal and removed – a razor's edge of emotion, repressing some impulses, and opening up surprisingly at other moments. Titles include "Mixed Emotions", "I Miss You So", "Go Way From My Window", "I Love You Yes I Do", "Trust In Me", "Past The Age Of Innocence", "Time Out For Tears", "My Heart Is So Full Of You", "My Ideal", "They All Laughed", "Speak Low", and "Radar Blues".

Chris ConnorJazz Date With Chris Connor ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good ... $11.99
They got the "jazz date" right in the title on this one – as Chris Connor works here with some exceptional small combo backing – all in a mode that almost takes her back to the earliest sound of her first few records on Bethlehem! Ralph Sharon's the maestro here – handling all the arrangements for a few small combos with players who include Oscar Pettiford on bass, Sam Most on flute, Eddie Costa on vibes, Joe Puma on guitar, and Lucky Thompson and Al Cohn on tenor – all modern-minded players who turn out to be a really great fit for Connor on the date. A few numbers even feature added Latin percussion from Mongo Santamaria – and titles include "All I Need Is You", "Driftwood", "Fancy Free", "It Only Happens When I Dance With You", and "Lonely Town".

Chris ConnorMisty ... LP
Atlantic (Japan), Late 50s. Very Good ... $9.99
An unusual set from the legendary vocalist Chris Connor – a record that's graced with a boozy later image of Chris on the front, but which features a host of rare gems from her late 50s years at Atlantic Records! There's some really wonderful work on the record that easily matches, if not beats Chris Connor gems on some of her bigger albums of the time – especially since some of the cuts show Connor trying out some new modes, and new ideas – elements that go past her usual vocal jazz styles, with some cool inflections that really open things up. Highlights include great versions of "Senor Blues", "Moon Ride", "I Sold My Heart To The Junkman", and "Invitation" – plus "Long Hot Summer", "Fortune Cookies", "Circus", and "Flying Home".

Bobby DarinBobby Darin Sings Doctor Dolittle ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Sealed ... $4.99
One of Bobby D's albums from his confused period in the mid 60s! Sounds sort of goofy, but it actually works, thanks to some swinging arrangements by Roger Kellaway, and the pep and zip of the score. Plus, the cover's got Bobby leaning on a push me-pull me, with a doctor's bag and a big stovepipe hat. Titles include "At The Crossroads", "I Think I Like You", "Fabulous Places", "Talk To The Animals", "After Today", and "My Friend The Doctor". LP, Vinyl record album

Lurlean HunterBlue & Sentimental ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Probably the best-ever album by this obscure bluesy singer from Chicago! Jimmy Giuffre handled the arrangements, and the record has a bit more polish than some of her other albums. The tracks feature some very nice jazzy arrangements – with Jim Hall on guitar, Jimmy Jones on piano, and Harry Edison on trumpet. Lurlean's voice is deep and rich, with a sound that's a mix of Ella Fitzgerald and some of the icier singers, like Chris Connor or June Christy. Tracks include "Blue Turning Grey Over You", "Just Imagine", "My Kinda Love", "As Long As I Live", and "The Song Is You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing with AT etch. Vinyl has two small pressing bumps, which cause a very small thud for a few spins – but plays great overall, and cover is nice!)

Mabel MercerMable Mercer Sings Cole Porter ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A classic album of Cole Porter tunes – sung by Mabel Mercer with just a bit of tinkling piano in the background! The overall sound's a bit older than you might guess from the date of the record – a mode that takes most of the Porter tunes relatively straight, served up in Mercer's trilling style of vocals – which have more of a 20s approach to the material than other 50s singers who were making Porter swing a bit more. Backing is by Cy Walter or Stan Freeman on piano, plus a bit of bass by Frank Carroll – and titles include "Ours", "Where Oh Where", "After You", "So In Love", "Looking At You", "Ace In The Hole", and "It's Delovely". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Esther PhillipsConfessin' The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 70s album, issued at a time when Esther Phillips was really riding high with her records on the Kudo label – but a set that brings together unissued sides recorded for Atlantic in the 60s! The style is a great mix of rootsy soul and hipper jazz – arranged by Onzy Matthews on side one, with a care and quality that almost rivals Capitol jazz vocal sessions of the time – and performed live at Freddie Jett's Piper Club on side two – in the same mode as her classic Burnin album from the time locale! Philips is wonderful in both settings – with that distinct approach that's unlike any other singer we know – quite versatile, and at a critical point between her R&B work of the 50s, and her smoother Kudu jazz of the 70s. Titles include include "Cherry Red", "In The Evenin", "I Wonder", "Romance In The Dark", "I Love Paris", and "I'm Gettin' Long Alright". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Esther PhillipsEsther ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good ... $19.99
Given her start as a rough-hewn child junkie R&B singer, it's hard to believe that Esther's the one singing these beautiful ballads and soul tracks! The album's fantastic, though – and it shows Esther maturing into one of the more fantastic vocalists of her generation. Oliver Nelson, Ray Ellis, and Jimmy Wisner handle the arrangements – and they all have a very nice blend of fragile orchestrations that are just right for Esther's raw pain-filled voice. Titles include "Taste Of Honey", "Crazy He Calls Me", "He Touched Me", "Just Say Goodbye", and "As Tears Go By". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(White label mono promo. Cover has a promo sticker and some splitting in the bottom seam.)

Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate – Early Show/Late Show ... LP
FM, 1963. Very Good+ ... $28.99
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have a slightly different spirit. Backing is by a small group that includes Mundell Lowe on guitar, Ronnie Ball on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Shaunessy on drums – and the liveness of the recording really comes through, in a way that gets more at the boozy Chris of late nite clubs than you'd hear on most of her studio albums. Titles include "All Or Nothing At All", "Old Devil Moon", "Goodbye", "Only The Lonely", "Black Coffee", "Ten Cents A Dance", and "Only The Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – with deep groove. Cover has a light mark from a sticker in one corner, but is nice overall.)
